Wayne’s interest in motorcycles developed into his own company named Motorsport that started out with Wayne doing custom fabrication of “Chopper” type motorcycles and Harley-Davidson engine rebuilding. In 1973 the company started manufacturing its own products and developed into a mail order enterprise with the creation of a catalog and national advertising, selling to consumers, dealers and distributors and focusing on products for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Independence generated through mail order allowed the Pingels to move from their original location in a heavily populated suburban area near Chicago to a more rural setting in Wisconsin in 1979 which now occupies 51,000 square feet of space. As time went by, the company became more involved in manufacturing motorcycle drag racing products. To offer more to the racer, the company then started distributing other product lines.
